Verstappen Streaks To Bahrain Victory, Alonso Earns Podium

SAKHIR, Bahrain — Picking up where he left off in 2022, two-time defending world champion Max Verstappen earned the Formula 1 season-opening victory in the Bahrain Grand Prix. After earning the pole, Verstappen powered his Oracle Red Bull Racing machine to a stout lead early on as teammate Sergio Perez was left to contend with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. While Verstappen scampered off to a more than 10-second lead, the story of the race came in the latter stages at the Bahrain Int’l Circuit. With Leclerc out, Alonso vaulted to fourth, setting his sights on the lone Ferrari of Sainz. Four laps later, Alonso caught Sainz and passed him, securing the final step of the podium.
